melton Suburb Profile & Review

Located in Melbourne's outer-west, Melton was a small farming community before it was declared a satellite city in the 1970s. Housing estates in the area experienced such rapid growth that some of them, such as Kurunjang and Hillside, became suburbs in their own right. Today there are a great many residents who commute into the city for work.

Public transport services are extensive. Melton Station provides V/Line train services to Southern Cross Station on the Ballarat line. Buses connect Melton to outer suburbs such as Sunshine and Caroline Springs, and a shuttle bus travels to the Melbourne Airport. NightRider services extend to the area, so a late night out in the city is always an option.

Families with school-aged children are certainly not lacking for choice; Melton has a whopping eleven primary schools and six high schools, including Kurunjang Secondary College and Melton Secondary College. Woodgrove Shopping Centre, with its seventy-five stores, is the main shopping precinct, and includes a Kmart, Coles, Bunnings, La Porchetta Restaurant and a Readings Cinema. For entertainment, live performances are often held at the Melton Civic Centre and the Tabcorp Park racing complex, which is also the home of Harness Racing Victoria.

It’s important to note when looking at this data that you don’t just use it on its own. Consider this demographic and real estate data as a whole and seek advice from a professional when thinking of buying or selling your next property.

Here we have outlined the median value for all sales for each year over a period of 5 years. This is a more realistic timeframe when gauging how houses and units in melton have performed, and it usually indicates how they will perform in the future.

Median values less than 3 months old are often not always accurate (due to incomplete data) and therefore cannot be relied upon for long-term melton property price predictions.

Typically, inner city suburbs within 10km of the CBD are comprised of apartments and semi-detached homes, while middle ring suburbs have semi-detached and detached properties. Rural properties would most likely fall under the “other” category.

This ABS Property Type data combined with Population Density and Family Composition figures gives a good indication of the type of people living in an area and therefore what type of property (1-2 bed apartment or house) would be an ideal investment or property to live in.

melton Income & Mortgage Stats

To calculate the percentage of income paid towards a mortgage for the suburb of Melbourne, multiply the mortgage payment (e.g. $2450) by 12 then divide this figure by the weekly income (e.g. $1200) multiplied by 52 (weeks) to look like this ($2450 x12/$1200 x 52) x 100 = 47%

Any figure above 30% usually indicates that the suburb you intend to buy in may have property owners with a high incidence of mortgage stress. In terms of maintaining or growing property values in the future and trying to secure a strong property price when selling, this could have an impact, especially in an economic or local industry downturn.
